Tell Congress where to cut
In order to balance the budget, Congress is considering devastating cuts to programs like Medicare, Social Security and education. They need to decide by the end of the year.
But the first place they should look to for cuts is our costly, outdated and dangerous nuclear weapons stockpile.
Right now Congress is in the middle of a tug of war over what budgets will be cut in order to keep the country from going over the so-called fiscal cliff.
Where would you rather see that money go? To your schools and roads and communities, or to bombs that could destroy the world hundreds of times over? I think the answer is pretty clear.
Congress is working on a deal to balance the budget right now. They need to hear that you want them to find savings by cutting nuclear weapons before a deal is done. Urge your representative to show public support by signing on to Rep. Markey’s letter calling for cuts to nuclear weapons.
Thank you for standing up for a budget that puts human needs above war and weapons.
